At first you will know not what they mean An

At first you will know not what they mean
And you may never know
And we may never tell you
These sudden flashes in your soul
Like lambent lightning on snowy clouds
At midnight when the moon is full.
They come in solitude or perhaps
You sit with your friend and all at once
A silence falls on speech and his eyes
Without a flicker glow at you
You two have seen the secret together
He sees it in you and you in him.
And there you sit thrilling lest the Mystery
Stand before you and strike you dead
With a splendor like the sun's.
Be brave all souls who have such visions!
As your body's alive as mine is dead
You're catching a little whiff of the ether
Reserved for God Himself. .
